||And the prophet Elijah arose like a fire, and his word burned like a torch.
||He brought a famine upon them, and those who provoked him in their envy became few. For they could not bear the precepts of the Lord.
||By the word of the Lord, he closed the heavens, and he brought down fire from heaven three times.
||In this way, Elijah was magnified in his wondrous works. So who can say that he is similar to you in glory?
||He was received into a whirlwind of fire, into a swift chariot with fiery horses.
||He is written in the judgments of the times, so as to lessen the wrath of the Lord, to reconcile the heart of the father to the son, and to restore the tribes of Jacob.
||Blessed are those who saw you, and who were adorned with your friendship.
